Texas County Memorial Hospital has named Kelly Tarrants of Houston the November employee of the month.
Tarrants is the billing clerk for TCMH Home Health of the Ozarks. She has been employed at TCMH for over 22 years. Tarrants was nominated for the award by her supervisor, Courtney Owens, home health director.
“Kelly is one of the most dependable and hardworking employees I’ve had the honor to work with,” Owens said. She described Tarrants as “the backbone” of the department.
Owens noted that Tarrants is always willing to pass along her experience and knowledge to new employees with a positive attitude.
“In the past year, Kelly has trained several new employees and juggled additional workloads whenever the job required it. She always did it with a smile,” Owens said.
As employee of the month, Tarrants received a certificate honoring her achievement; a pin; a special parking place in the TCMH lot; one day of paid vacation; a $50 gift card, and gift certificates to Paws N Claws, D&L Florist; Blissful Nirvana Massage, Wehr Motors, Savor Grill and Big Red Car Wash. A reception will be held at the hospital in honor of Tarrants.
